Based on what I've ridden, I'd rank them this way:

 

Alpengeist

Afterburn

Montu

Talon

Ice Dragon

Raptor

Fire Dragon

Patriot

Batman/Great White

 

I should add that as I've gotten older the higher intensity rides tend to make me feel more ill than when I was younger, so that probably plays a part in it as well. Also, I've really enjoyed every B&M Invert I've been on, so even though Batman/Great White are last in my rankings I still think they make for a great ride.

 

*EDIT: Forgot to add a couple

I have been on:

Alpengeist

Top Gun (PGA)

Raptor

Batman (SFGam, SFMM, and SFGaD)

Dueling Dragons

 

I vote for Alpengeist. I love the use of the terrain and that high speed blast from the loop down into the cobra roll is pretty spectacular.

Force-wise, it isn't the best, but as a total package, I think it is a great ride, with a great theme.

 

Looking forward to riding Montu in the next couple of weeks.

I've only been on a few B&M inverts in America, here's my list from favorite to least favorite:

 

-Montu

-Dragon Challenge (Fireball)

-Dragon Challenge (Horntail)

-Batman: The Ride (I choose SFOT's over SFMM's)

-Silver Bullet

 

I would put Silver Bullet higher but thanks to my last few rides on Batman, I now remember riding the ride.

I switched my favorite to Montu. It has decent theming and landscaping (not that it's alone in this among inverts). It goes on for a long time and keeps you guessing. And instead of focusing solely on intensity like many others that I like to varying degrees, it simply provides a purely enjoyable coaster experience that isn't attributable only to forces.

Finally, we agree on something.

I've been on Alpengeist, Montu, and both sides of Dragon Challenge. This was honestly a tough choice between Alpengeist and Montu. Montu maybe a better ride in terms of being forceful, but there's something about Alpengeist that makes me love the ride a lot. It might be a combination of it's layout, theming, and use of terrain. Or it could be the fact it was my first B&M invert, which made me fall in love with them. Still trying to get a Batman credit.
